for jobs these days, there are a couple of sectors hiring and even growing. science and technology, that as we've seen in our education nation series this week, american students are far behind their global competition in science and math. there is a push to reverse the trend and it starts by training future math and science teachers. our report from our education correspondent, rehema ellis. >> reporter: sherry lamb is studying science and learning how to teach it. >> chemistry and teaching is what i really, really enjoy. >> reporter: this college junior is part of "you teach" a program that helps the next generation be a group of math and science teachers. you have always been interested? they're offering free courses, and do field work at public schools as early as the next semester. after four years, they graduate with a bachelor's degree and teaching certificate. it is no coincidence that the focus is on math and science. >> years ago, if you had a strong back you could get a job. that doesn't exist anymore. >> reporter: the united states will need an estimated 230,000 math an
science now in understanding and a lot of is informed by the psychology research and so the science of the mobilization turnout has gotten much better it's still pretty vague and it's reinvesting in a lot of mobilization techniques because we have learned in the last decade how they work as we have two separate things you sort of know once you get somebody to implicate voting by the two per cent and now we have better targeting techniques to figure out who you talk to and about what what message or targeting but the big campaigns do targeting and analysis on the front end of the allows them to understand far more precise clean way for their turn of targets and they don't need to talk to until who the persuasion targets are and if you are narrowing your universe the people you're trying to persuade you can make your messages sharper. you can sort of focus or qualitative research and focus groups and polling and an experimental testing to get more closely to the question of what that, what is at 7%. so you are talking to 7% and then not messages that are speaking to a far broader size
% registered democrats. but only 14% are republican. social science is only 6%. >> 70 2% self identify as liberal. which is a big disparity between them and the general public. john: you were a junior when obama was elected? >> it was light a little of the colt it happened across the nation. john: not just the attitude but there are actual space -- speech restriction red light, yellow light and this university was demoted? >> to policies unc maintains which is sexual-harassment if you attended college and other than unc it bans all sexually explicit jokes. john: david, you have a copy what did you find? >> sexually explicit jokes jokes, books, it is different -- difficult to control how you look at someone. policy in the residence halls to avoid using the returners spoken word in the way that offends. that is a rage asleep fraud. a picture of mitt romney would offend 70%. [laughter] john: you may not explicitly or implicitly asked for sex. john: then how do you get there? [laughter] is it automatically rate? >> these policies are not well thought out. this is what you get to with burea
is in decline. researchers at the australian institute of marine science say the reef has lost half of its coral cover over the past 27 years. there are multiple causes, including a destructive kind of starfish shown here. we look at what's behind it and what's at stake-- in australia and around the world-- with nancy knowlton, a coral reef biologist and a chair of marine science at the smithsonian national museum of natural history here in washington. welcome. >> thanks. how has all of this coral died off? do we know what's causing it? is it all that... >> it's not all the star fish. the star fish is about 42%. typhoons, big strong storms another 48% and then coral bleaching is the remaining 10% which is caused whenever the water gets too hot. >> ifill: so this is human causedded? >> yes. most of it is human caused. i mean a coral reef naturally goes through cycles of up and down. but it shouldn't be declining by half over course of 27 years. >> ifill: i feel like we have talked before about the declining coral cover. but not... but i'm wondering whether it's now picking up speed or whether thi

anything to do with the satellite glitch in the michael sync report. we want to give your science geek viewers an update what is going on. you are among our most favorite viewers by the way so here's an update. nasa rover curiosity that landed early last month is making pretty big progress. curiosity using the robotic arm to a martian rock. first time that happened according to scientists. a laser on the end of this arm we're looking at in this picture zapped the rock and analyzed its composition. and then the rover took off on its longest drive, so far, 140 feet, which might not sound like a lot but this is taking place on mars, folks. of course the big work still lies ahead. the rover slowly but surely making its way to the foothills of a giant mountain, mount sharp. about six miles from where the roof very is right now. there is belief there is evidence of water at the base of that mountain that water once existed there and perhaps that could mean life once existed there too. the rover could start making its way toward mount sharp by the end of the year. we'll keep you posted on the
, language arts, maps and science. he's the athletic director, basketball coach and student council co-advisorier -- adviser. here's what's going to happen today -- a substitute teacher is in place he will be in place today and tomorrow and then on monday, what they will do is take his classes and distribute the kids to other classes. and that's how it is going to work. the counselors are also in place today. we talked about parents having questions. parents can ask the administrators but certainly a lot of questions. a lot of people that we've told about what happened. certainly are shocked and upset. we tried to talk to some neighbors of the teacher. they were upset and didn't want to talk about the situation. but apparently the home he was arrested in is one that he grew up in. the family has been there for years. claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. >>> in antioch, some parents are angry saying they are not notified about a student who brought a gun to school. the turner school principal said -- said the incident happened last wednesday but the letters did not go out u
guidance and be able to focus on other things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> jennifer: that was mitt romney back in his now infamous florida fund-raiser in may hoping to add to his haul. he's now actually spending as much as he's taken in and a lot of his campaign cash comes from one guy. casino magonate sheldon adelson. you will remember sheldon adelson joined romney on his controversy-filled trip to israel this past summer. adelson has clear interest in israel. i owns an israeli newspaper. he's been a vocal advocate for a tougher american stance against iran on israel's behalf but now it looks like his motives for supporting romney could even be a little more selfish. many of you may know he's under a federal investigation into money laundering at his casino in las vegas and possible violation of bribery laws in china. some observers thought that perhaps he was hoping to shield himself from that investigation by supporting the right candidate. adelson seemed
problem with things that are preventable in health care. areason's i got into this of the science of medical mistakes -- ever since i got into this area of science of medical mistakes, people have come up with all kinds of stories. people come up after conferences and it is almost as if somebody has a story of somebody they know or somebody they love. host: who is responsible? guest: i think there are no villains in this game. i think everybody is well intended. we have an opportunity for hospitals to increase the level of accountability by disclosing their patient outcomes. doctors' groups have come together and endorsed great ways to measure hospital quality. 2,000 track them at the patient level. do we think the public has a right to know about the quality of their hospitals? host: haven't we been tracking outcomes for 50 years? we just keep increasing the outcomes but it hasn't improved. guest: absolutely. there are all kinds of outcomes to attract. services grow and every hospital. a lot of people are falling through the cracks. we have great measures that doctors' groups i j
striking for their kids. >> how about science deniers. the science is in. you have to get that in. birther three is critical for learning. it is a funding issue. if you don't have money for kids until they are six years old to start kinder garden, you have missed that -- those critical brain development years. we are starting to fund public education too late. >> i want to unpack one thing pedro said so people understand. when we say integration is off the table in public schools, what we are talking about is that justice roberts ruled in 2007 in the seattle school's decision that schools could not take race into a factor at all to integrate public schools. that's where brown ended and so i just think as a big point, not that we have all the time in the world for it but part of these reform issues are also about reforming the courts. there are certain decisions we talk a lot about in money and politics. this area of integration is something that is going to come from reforming. >> i have been so revved up since education nation. we are doing a little education every week. you guys are alre
his fake science theory about pregnancy and rape, he has also described his opponent, unladylike. they released video of him for spending time in jail and he is defending his vote against fair pay for women, not by saying that women don't suffer in terms of pay discrimination, but by saying instead that he just doesn't believe that discrimination is wrong. he doesn't believe that businesses should have to follow any laws about who they discriminate against. the government shouldn't tell you what you pay and what you don't pay. discrimination is just freedom for business owners who are getting a really good deal on their lady workers. republicans have to weigh how badly they want a republican candidate snar for missouri. they have to weigh that against how much it's going to cost them to be associated with the le jat mitt rape, your unladylike jailed abortion protesters i'm against civil rights guy in missouri. now he says that businesses should be able to discriminate in what t
of a giant science lab. a tourist was among three people who died from the hanta virus. nine people became infected. scientists are now screening employees at the california park and testing rodents to get a better idea how the disease was transmitted. >>> a man faces charges for causing tense moments for passengers on a plane in midair. >> please help me! please help me! i can't breathe! >> that's the man yelling after fellow passengers restrained him. apparently moments before, he started pacing the cabin, then grabs women and harassed others. this happened on a united airlines flight from chicago to california on tuesday. passengers jumped into action and held the man with a belt until the flight landed. once on the ground, police arrested him. no one was hurt. >>> another united airlines flight had to return to the airport after two flight attendents got into an argument. that plane had just taken off from raleigh, north carolina. the captain asked police to meet them at the gate. just last week, an argument between two flight attendants caused a four-hour delay. >>> a new breakthrough

team 4 meteorologist veronica johnson. >> it is cool. science is always cool. and the fact we've got fog out. what makes fog form? the clear sky and calm winds. >>> it is pretty calm right now. the rain has moved out. a lot of moisture. that's the area that had the heavy rain. dense fog advisory for fauquier county, spotsylvania county, and off to the west in albemarle county. we're at 63 in fairfax and reston. areas around calvert, 63. franconia, your hometown forecast. 7:00 a.m., still cloud cover around the area. 68 degrees around 7:00. low 70s, some sunshine around noon. after 3:00 today, when you really want to keep an eye on the sky, especially areas south of d.c. around southern maryland over toward rappahannock again, the same areas that had the heavy rain yesterday. 81 with a 40% chance of rain for today. your seven day forecast coming up in a couple of minutes. right now first 4 traffic. >> thanks, veronica. >>> right now tracking breaking news on the roadway. if you're traveling the dulles access road eastbound, still seeing all the eastbound lanes of the access road block
thousand dollars and i will pay my teachers $75,000 a year too. come on. this is not rocket science. it is hard political work. the political will to meet the needs of children whose needs have never been matched is hard. >> come in. >> richard's argument is frustrating and personal honestly because their statistical likelihood of graduating high school would be less than 50% and we can say that is okay and we are making progress. that is not okay. we have to take a totally different look at what we're doing in public education and rethink it and say how the we take what we found in small isolated pockets and figure out how to get them to millions of kids who need them and that is a massive challenge. none of us are underestimating the size of this challenge. i am trying to argue we have indications of what those elements are. in new york city public schools from k-12 the personal the likelihood of me graduating with a diploma was 5%. five% of kids graduated special-education students from new york city public schools and i went on to graduate from high school and had great teachers
's a symptom of the disease. governor romney, he knows about as much about science as anybody i know. he's educated. he's got a degree in harvard in law, in business. he could do a little studying about climate change and understand it's a real challenge. and yet he just plays this know-nothing view of i don't know anything about that stuff. he does. >> he kind of reminds me of john boehner trying to preside over that house caucus of people who are fire breathing and wants the first thing to be done to be banning abortion. romney understand he's a passenger in this vehicle. the hard right is driving this car and he's just trying to manage the issues, trying to manage the chaos. i think people saying that it's romney kind of miss the point. this is a party that has moved so far to the right that i'm not sure jeb bush or chris christie or any of the other ones could have managed it any better because the problem is the actual party itself has really moved off of center and they've gone to far right. and they don't -- not enough people identify with that. when they look at themselves in tha

, you know, disbelieving in science thing, but really, at this point to say no, no, no, all these polls, except rasmussen, are faulty because they oversample-- somes is just sad. >> this is the disavow of reality that seems to be permeating the romney campaign and joe scarborough highlighted this morning. i will highlight it today, this afternoon. an op-ed in the "wall street journal" by jason riley that says mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducinged his unforced errors and less on the fourth estate's political bias if whining about the liberal media was a winning strategy for republicans newt gingrich would be the nominee. hugo, i will call your attention -- >> liberal media. >> new york times hugo lingren, this i think is really -- i like this because it references stink bombs also. the ap quoting michael mcdonald of george mason university which tracks early voting saying if you wait until the election prior to the election to release your stink bomb you've lost coloradans. if you've got the game changer you have to do that soon. >> i agree with that. look, the romney ca

right by medical science, is really critical for achieving health and preventing these diseases. so the green new deal is a win/win win because it gets us to clean energy which can stop the climate crisis, jump start our economy, creating three times as many jobs as every dollar spent in the fossil fuel economy, and it puts us back to work. so it's a win/win win all around. host: dawn, joining us from oxford, alabama with dr. jill stein, last call. good morning to you. caller: good morning. i kind of agree with an awful lot of what you said about the cause of all this. but the one thing that you admitted and i'm cureuse about, what would -- kaoeurous about, what would make a banker with the subprime mortgage, what would make him -- which the whole goal is to make money, as much as he can, what would make a banker loan money to somebody that he knows was not going to be able to pay him back? and then do they just think -- get a meeting and say we're going to create these instances where we're going to loan money for people to buyouts, paopl that can't pay it back and sell it to someb
't mind sharing a little political science secret with you. although the debates routinely draw large viewing audiences, evidence shows that voters do learn a little bit of information from them, but political scientists also tend to agree that debates don't actually make a difference in the outcome. sorry. it's at least statistically true. most often, you can accurately predict where a race will end up after the debates by knowing where things stood before the debates. but don't tell the candidates. because with the first presidential debate coming up wednesday, governor romney and president obama will be gearing up for a fight. that's a good thing. we still need the debates. it's a so krat i can sem nor of sorts for the country having the candidates stand behind their podiums forced to answer for nair proposals. we get to see how the ideas stand up under questioning before you decide. at least for some of us, before we vote. here with me today is msnbc c contributor for the blog. latino.com's victoria did he francesco soto. she's a fellow at the university of texas. jam al simpsons
